Papaya Maradol

Seasons/Availability

Maradol papayas are available year-round.

Selection

Choose papayas that are heavy for their size and give a little when pressed. The skin should be mostly yellow without any major green patches. If you want to ripen the fruits at home, choose those that have more green than yellow in color.

Storage

Whole papayas can be stored at room temperature until ripe, then refrigerated for up to five days. Once cut, they should be covered and wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or placed in an airtight container before refrigerating. Papaya chunks can also be frozen for up to three months if desired. Enjoy your freshly ripened or frozen papayas in smoothies, desserts, salads, salsas, and more! You can even use them for meat marinades to create delicious and flavorful dishes. Papayas are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that will keep you feeling healthy and energized. So get creative in the kitchen with papayas today!
